OK, we made a pact last week not to ever, ever, ever talk about John McGinn again because he’s not a Celtic player but when a Scottish player does this, it needs to be talked about just a little.

John McGinn made his choice in the summer to snub his bhoyhood heroes to sign a lucrative deal with Aston Villa with many putting the failure of the deal firmly at Peter Lawwell’s door.

Well, if you have clicked onto this article Pete – you might want to look away now.

John McGinn scored an incredible volley for his new club today and has gone viral on social media because of it.

The Scottish international drew his side level in the second half against Sheffield Wednesday but even though the strike was a goal worthy of winning a game – Villa fell to a 2-1 defeat in the end.

Celtic were keen to bring John in during the summer window, but Peter Lawwell was trying to bargain with Hibs longer than he should have. Aston Villa came calling and got the deal wrapped up straight away even though Hibs accepted a late bid from the Scottish champions.

Like him or not, that was some strike.


  1. Lawwell knows if he gets injured, McGinn will fall behind others in the Aston Martin team. And you get him on loan, if he become’s Hoops sick. After all Peter is a busnessman first, Hoops supporter second.
